Gun Review: Kimber K6s DCR .357 Magnum

The J Frame-size magnum revolver has been the quintessential backup gun for decades. And for a good reason. They’re easy to carry, fast to deploy and pack a heck of a punch. Kimber, known for their mid-market 1911s, got into the wheelgun game a few years ago with their version of the powerful snubby. Unsurprisingly, […]

Gun Review: Ruger PC Carbine

It was hard to shake an AR at last year’s SHOT Show without hitting a pistol caliber carbine. They’re all the rage these days, including Ruger’s new PC Carbine seen here, but did you know Ruger’s been making semi-auto PCCs for almost 60 years? My grandpa has a Model 44 from the 70’s, which he’s […]

Gun Review: Ruger Security-9

Though they’ve been out of production for 30 years, Ruger’s “Security-Six” remains a legendary model, named for its six-round capacity (much like Ruger’s Single-Ten holds 10 rounds). Naturally, Ruger’s new Security-9 holds . . . Well, no. The new semi-automatic pistol holds 15+1 rounds of 9mm. Should we let that slide? . . . A prepper would. The […]

Gun Review: Savage 10/110 BA Stealth Rifle

Savage Arms has earned a solid reputation for making highly accurate, quality rifles at an affordable price. As soon as I saw the 10/110 BA Stealth I was drawn to its minimalist, modern chassis stock appearance and Savage’s reputation for accuracy. TTAG borrowed this example, chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor and put it through its paces. Though […]

Gun Review: BUL Cherokee 9mm Pistol

By Austin Knudsen My search for quality, affordable self-defense handguns for the budget-minded shooter continues. This time, my quest lead me to the BUL Cherokee, a full-size 9mm Parabellum/Luger semi-auto pistol assembled in Israel. I’m a fan of Israeli weapons. I figure a country that’s been surrounded by enemies bent on its destruction since its […]

Gun Review: Blaser LRS 2 Rifle

Blaser Jagdwaffen GmbH is a German firearms manufacturer primarily known for manufacturing high-end shotguns and multi-caliber hunting rifles in the European tradition, including the well-regarded straight-pull R-8.  In 1997, Blaser released a police sniper version of its now-discontinued R-93 action under the euphemistically benign name of “Long Range Sporter” (LSR). Blaser is a manufacturing firm […]

Gun Review: Military Surplus Browning Hi Power MK II

By Nick Franssen: The pistol that would eventually become known as the Browning Hi Power pistol started life as the P-35. It was in its final stages of development when its creator, the legendary John Moses Browning, died at the FN plant in Belgium. From there, the pistol was completed by Dieudonne Saive and put into […]

Gun Review: Smith & Wesson Model 19-3

The Smith & Wesson Model 19 “Combat Magnum” was one of the most beloved handguns ever made. Produced continuously from 1957 to 1999, tens of thousands of police officers carried a Model 19 on their hip, including US Immigration and Naturalization Service and the US Border Patrol agents. While larger departments could afford to issue Model 19s as duty […]
